Abstract

Since many marine ecosystems cross international borders, effective management requires transboundary interaction between agencies and policy makers. National borders may not stop marine organisms, but they definitely constrain the amount and character of interaction between scientists, managers, and decision makers. At minimum, an international border can complicate communication, travel, funding, and project implementation. More significantly, differences in law, political systems, and culture need to be navigated.
